|2009 Pound Coins|
The obverse bears the fourth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, introduced on all UK coins in 1998.
The reverse of the coin shows the Shield of Arms.
The edge is not only milled but also inscribed. The inscription in Latin reads:-
DECUS ET TUTAMEN
Which may be translated as "an ornament and a safeguard". This inscription dates back to the first machine-struck coins minted in 1662 and was a device to prevent "clipping".
Llantrisant Mint Mark
On the milled edge of the coin is the Llantrisant mint mark - a cross crosslet. The 1983 pound was the first United Kingdom coin to be struck with this distinctive feature. The shape of the cross alluding to Llantrisant, which translated from the Welsh means "Church or Parish of the Three Saints".
The design process for the pound coin began with a competition for the reverse design of the new coin. The entries were judged by the Royal Mint Advisory Committee, whose President is the Duke of Edinburgh, and the selected design by Eric Sewell, formerly Chief Engraver of the Royal Mint, was then submitted for the approval of Her Majesty The Queen.
